How Did It Really Happen?
Decide what you believe about History's intriguing mysteries
About this book
This is a book about things we know and things we don’t know. Putting the emphasis on whodunits and mysteries, we’ve sifted through historical events to assemble a collection of episodes that, to a degree, confound our efforts to completely understand what happened. Sometimes we are confronted with a story without an ending. Sometimes there are pieces missing – moments when no one else was around to record an eyewitness account. Sometimes a received view or a myth clouds our vision or leads us astray, and we have to rub our eyes and look carefully once again at the evidence.
This book doesn’t confine itself to man-made history and famous personalities. How life arose, where human beings came from, what happened to the dinosaurs, what happens when we die – these are mysteries enough. As for our conclusions – well, it would be surprising if any reader agreed with all of the statements contained in this book. In putting it together, we discovered two things:
- how little we really know about the world we live in; and
- how much fun it is investigating these puzzles and finding out more about them.
